Following a fierce bidding war, CBS has beat out ABC for the rights to a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced adaptation of British thriller “Eleventh Hour.”
Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are set to exec produce the untitled adaptation of “Eleventh Hour”.
“Eleventh Hour” aired as a four-part miniseries in Blighty last year, with Patrick Stewart starring. Stewart played Professor Alan Hood, who’s called in by the government to investigate mysterious cases that involve matters of science–from cloning to global warming. U.S. adaptation is said to have a tone similar to “The X-Files.”
